STORY SYNOPSIS:
Lucien D'Artois, a wealthy French farmer fond of raising horses, is married to Germaine, according to the terms of a marriage contract. When she finds his rustic interests unbearable, she leaves him. Determined to become a polished Parisian, Lucien goes to the city and assiduously studies fencing and dancing but is unable to gain her favor. He embarks on a life of frivolity and free spending and to demonstrate his powers with women deliberately steals Fox Trot, a nightclub girl, from Lazarre. When his Fortune is depleted, his entire possessions are confiscated with the exception of a suit of evening clothes. Living by his wits, Lucien imagines himself still a popular and wealth count, and returning to his bare flat, he finds his wife returned to him.
